When the ABS sensors in the front hub assemblies fail, the traction control system goes into a spuratic limp mode that cuts power to the wheels causing a temporary loss of control leaving the vehicle powerless in on coming traffic. This event usually occurs when turning on to a road way, braking while turning, or accelerating on the expressway.

The contact owns a 2008 Ford Explorer. The contact stated that the electronic stability control warning light illuminated intermittently and the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was able to restart but the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the wires connected to the brakes needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 77,000.

Vehicle stability control comes on for no reason and loss of braking is experienced at the same time. This nearly caused a serious accident as I was approaching an intersection, which I had to drive through forcing other drivers to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting me. The issue never reappeared during this drive and only occurs randomly.
